Men’s File presents HERITAGE

January 17, 2012

Men’s File, the well known subcultural style (fashion, motorcycles, cars, bicycles, surfing, skateboarding, military, re-enactment etc.) magazine have taken the step of setting up their first pop-up shop in London, which opened its doors yesterday for a fortnight. Situated on the ever popular Lamb Conduit Street, I popped down today to take a look and photograph the space.

The shop is a physical manifestation of the heritage style loved by the Men’s File editorial team. Containing a mix of clothing and curiosities, the space is a showcase of hand picked favourite pieces by The Curator (Men’s File on-line boutique), along with brands such as Lewis Leathers, Heritage Research, Private White V.C, Union 6, Allevol Jeans, Eastman Leather, Cherchbi and Buzz Ricksons (the Ricksons pieces are especially nice).

Nick Clements, the magazine’s Creative Director and Founder has transformed the pop-up space, turning it into a segment of the magazine with his unique knowledge of revival clothing and Americana memorabilia. You’ll find interesting bits such as a 2flex deck from 1978 signed by Tony Alva (if it wasn’t behind glass I’d have nicked it), replicas of Lewis Leathers biker jackets worn by Steve McQueen and unique screen prints which are on display and available to purchase.

It’s a great, if somewhat short lived addition to Lambs Conduit Street and one that’s well worth popping in to if you happen to be in the area. For more information on the magazine, go to the website here: Men’s File.
